    HI guys.

    Looking for advice on what sort of dog I should get, I'm in a good position this year to have the time to train one.
    I'll list the things I'd like in dog in no particular order. And keep in mind I have a small yard.

    Good with kids.
    Good with other dogs and animals.
    Won't need more than 1 walk a day.
    Good for tracking deer.
    Good around guns.
    Small to medium size.
    Trains easily.
    Happy to chill out.
    Obedient and loyal.

    Thanks.

    Haha, no.
    Should have mentioned that's just a wishlist, happy to compromise.

    It's ok Elliot you will
    However, the lab is looking a good bet at the moment.

    To be fair, labs are-
    good family dogs,
    fairly even temperament,
    strong constitution on the hill,
    cross over into most jonres of hunting easily,
    usually have a cast iron guts,
    and are reasonably intelligent.

    a lab if it is your dog,they are abit more forgiving with trianing than most breeds or a vizsla if you want a pointer.the vizslas i have seen are very good with kids and happy hanging out with pepole. good luck you will need it

    why the fuk would you get a fucking Lab, beyond me that one, Obvious Slab Bloody owners pushing their fat fucks. Grab an Aussie Terrier and your sorted, and as a bonus it works stock, eats fuk all, shits little, low shedding and tons of personality oh yeah and beats up slabs.

    Lab for a first dog.
    The flash breeds are fine if you can use them to their potential, but can give you grief if their traits aren't catered for. Labs are very forgiving and easy to get on with.
    When I read your list of wishes I thought "if you find one let me know because I want a pup out of it"
